Five Style Gurus To Follow Right Now
There’s a big difference between fashion and style.
Fashion is a fleeting moment in time. It is an art that is constantly pushing the boundaries and exploring new ideas. Whereas style is a timeless form of expression. While one cannot exist without the other, they are not necessarily locked in with one another. True style is not dependent on what is fashionable at any one given moment, but rather what makes you feel really great, what gives you confidence, and what shows you off in the best possible way.
These style gurus have not only defined their own style but will inspire you to do the same.
